The long-awaited second edition of the Rockfax Peak Bouldering guidebook is due for publication in early 2014. It will maintain the clarity of the original 1998 book, and combine this with the highly-acclaimed Rockfax photographic style of presentation. The book will cover all the main bouldering venues of the Peak District in one book, with many more low-grade problems than featured elsewhere, and will also include bouldering circuits that have proved popular in recent years. The number and range of venues more than doubles the coverage from the old book.
The book will present grades in both ‘V’ grades and Font grades, and UK technical grades for easier problems which many British rock climbers are often more familiar with.
